How much weight will I lose?
A person’s weight loss typically occurs more rapidly during the first three months of treatment.
As with any process of change it all depends on you!
The ORBERA® Managed Weight Loss Program can provide you with the tools to alter your eating behaviour, to start an exercise regime and to keep you on track, but how much you lose depends on your level of motivation.
A good goal is to try and average a loss of 1kg per week and studies show that with the ORBERA® Managed Weight Loss Program people can lose up to 10-15kgs* of excess weight. Experience demonstrates that the majority of a person’s weight loss typically occurs during the first three months of treatment. After that time the presence of the intragastric balloon plays a supportive role in helping you to maintain your new nutrition and exercise habits.
*Weight loss results vary from person to person.
The device itself is a soft silicone intragastric balloon that is inserted in a deflated state into the stomach and then inflated with sterile salt water through a self-sealing valve once it enters the stomach. The intragastric balloon will remain in place for a maximum of six months.
